The long-discussed Joe Haden suspension is finally official.
The Browns announced Monday afternoon that the cornerback would be suspended four games, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Haden’s impending suspension, for failing a test for Adderall, was first reported last month by Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com, but Haden’s appeal process dragged out. He played Sunday and had a pick (it seemed like everyone in the stadium did).
His loss will be significant for a defense that looked pretty solid Sunday, forcing the Eagles into five turnovers and keeping things close.
